MINI press release :

Racing genes ex-works: The John Cooper Works Pack for the MINIand MINI Convertible.

MINI also offers models and options under the John Cooper Worksproduct brand, giving customers everything they need to enjoy extremedriving fun and express their passion for racing. A John Cooper WorksPack has now been developed for the MINI and MINI Convertible,offering components that give the cars a head-turning sporting allure– both technically and stylistically. The model-specificinterior and exterior components optimise the handling of the MINI andensure it delivers an impressive visual impact. The John Cooper WorksPack is due to be available from the second quarter of 2011 as afactory-fit option.

Key to giving the cars fitted with the John Cooper Works Pack theirimposing appearance is the aerodynamics package, which lends thefront, rear and flanks of the MINI and MINI Convertible an undeniablysporting flavour. The black border around the lower part of the bodyis highlighted particularly clearly at the front and rear by acentrally positioned indentation. The inner section of the surroundsfor the positioning lights or foglamps on the outer edges of the frontapron feature horizontal slats. Plus, the radiator grille has the samehoneycomb structure as the lower air intake. The side skirts continuethe dynamic thread, curving inwards with a sweeping flourish andadding a stylised opening at the rear. As part of the aerodynamicspackage features, the powerfully formed rear apron includes prominentcut-outs at its outer edges which mimic the appearance of thepositioning light and foglamp surrounds integrated into the front apron.

The 17-inch weight-optimised light-alloy wheels inJohn Cooper Works Cross Spoke CHALLENGE design ensure thebest possible contact with the road. Moreover, the John Cooper WorksPack comes with the traction mode DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) addedto the standard-fitted stability system DSC (Dynamic StabilityControl), as well as EDLC (Electronic Differential Lock Control)– the electronically controlled locking function for the drivenaxle differential. DTC mode, which is activated at the touch of abutton, raises the intervention thresholds of the stability controltechnology, making it easier to pull away on loose sand or snow with adegree of wheel spin. The system also allows controllable slip throughthe driven wheels under particularly sporty cornering. The EDLC systemassists a sporty driving style when accelerating out of corners andsharp bends. In tight corners it brakes a spinning driven wheel asrequired to enhance the car’s traction without adverselyaffecting its self-steering properties. And that allows the driver tofeed the car through corners more smoothly, as well as at greater speed.

The interior components included in the John Cooper Works Pack alsoplay their part in creating a full-blooded driving experience. Theseinclude John Cooper Works door entry strips and the John Cooper Workssports leather steering wheel with red contrast stitching. Cars with amanual gearbox are also kitted out with a John Cooper Works gearshiftlever with red shift pattern lettering and a leather gaiter with redcontrast stitching. Customers specifying a manual gearbox will alsofind the handbrake gaiter featuring red contrast stitching.

The John Cooper Works Pack is available for all engine variants ofthe MINI and MINI Convertible and can be combined with eight bodycolours. The aerodynamics package included as part of the John CooperWorks Pack can also be ordered on its own for the MINI John CooperWorks and MINI John Cooper Works Convertible.

Indeed, the maximum output ofthe four-cylinder unit rises another 12 kW to147 kW/200 hp at 5,700 rpm. Plus, the driver can callon maximum torque of 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) between 1,250 and5,000 rpm when some seriously forceful acceleration is required– and this can be raised to as much as 270 Nm (199 lb-ft)between 1,800 and 5,000 rpm courtesy of the Overboost function.All of which means that the MINI Cooper S can sprint from 0 to100 km/h (62 mph) in just 6.8 seconds and record a top speedof 234 km/h (145 mph).

The John Cooper Works Tuning Kit includes a model-specific sportssilencer with chrome tailpipes, which optimises the exhaust gasdischarge and gives the engine sound a particularly sporting note.
